If I remember correctly, where your staying is a loft. Put some of those baits in the lower part of the building. We tried the 'swimming pool' and got quite a few. But the Tomcat cleaned them out. That and getting the holes closed off so no more could come in.

I know lots of people with the same model. They seem to work well.

 

I never could get mine to work right, they ate all the PB and then left.

 

We have had mice come in this week, I guess with the temps finally dropping. My mom got in the pantry, they tore into cookies and a package of saltines. Time for some special feed for them. We never had an issue when we had the cat, he never caught any we knew of, but they smelled him I guess and didn't come around. Same thing when we had the ferrets. I would place some of there droppings in the crawl spaces, we didn't have mice for years.

My garage has been infested for years. The city cleaned out a hoarder down the alley that had a pile of furniture in her back yard. I was instantly infested by mice. It's taken years of Tomcat, fixing holes, and flooding the nests under the garage to get rid of them. Bad part is, they tore most of the insulation out of two walls, so it gets hard to keep warm in the winter.

If I could possibly keep a cat or a mongoose or a ferret out in the garage without my dog eating it I would

You might be right about that one, looks like me after Thanksgiving diner. Maybe you should invest in a cat treadmill! Well at least if you need some extra weight for the tractor you could build a box on the back and put a bed in it, should be no lack of traction then.

It's our daughters cat and I think the cat is on her back as much as her feet. I'm gonna tell her to quit dieting the animal as I need more weight for the tractor! Dang I'm still laughing, thanks Eric! The cat is 18 lbs.

My parents big cat is huge. He is over 25lbs. He is fat but he is also a HUGE cat. Long and just big. He is also deformed in a way. He walks around like a racoon with his back arched. He never has his back out straight. Even if he is laying stretched out.

He also has the most articulated toes I've ever seen on a cat. He can use them like fingers and grab stuff. He was declawed and his claws grew back.

Come to think of it he is more like a racoon than a cat.

We never had trouble with mice yet. Rats, what a mess, I have been fighting them for a while. Chewing holes and burrowing under everything. Frustrating little buggars.

What if you were to breed some lab mice to be totally ignorant; I mean really stupid mice! Then, you release them into your native population. Mice being what they are, will breed with them like. . . Mice! Within a couple of generations, you're mice will all be standing around out in the open with their thumb in their mouth. You can just sweep them up.
The rest of the breeding stock can be sold for profit.

Or instead of chewing and actually working for their food, they will be standing at the door step with their paws out waiting for you to feed them. Wait, I've seen this happen somewhere before  :thumbs:  :D
